Talking to folks on Lasqueti about feral sheep?


My name is andrea bennett and I'm a writer living in qathet (specifically in tiskwat/Powell River). I work as a senior editor at TheTyee.ca

I recently learned about the feral sheep on Lasqueti, and would like to speak with people about the sheep. (I read the minutes from the April council meeting where there was a delegation about sheep; it seemed like there was a letter written that a few people signed on to?). 

I am also hoping to get in touch with Tom Weinerth, who led the delegation, if someone can pass a message along. 

I'd like to come visit the island and see the sheep and talk to folks about their history, their place on the island, and the how people feel about their impact to local flora and fauna. 

My email address is andreacunliffebennett [at] gmail [dot] com. I'm happy to share my phone number via email if phone is easier (but would prefer not to post it on the internet :)).

Looking for new parents in need of a daycare

Hello there,

We're a family currently thinking of settling on beautiful Lasqueti. The one thing that makes us hesitate is that we have a 19 month old baby, and there isn't any daycare on the island, to our knowledge. And unfortunately we really need to be working all day...

So I was wondering if there were any other new parents in the same situation, and if maybe we could try and find a collective solution? Maybe share home baby-sitting time and costs? Maybe find the means and people to start a little daycare?

In any case I would love to hear from you, about your experience on the island, and the solutions you maybe already found.

You can reach me at sandra [dot] dr [at] free [dot] fr

I'll keep my fingers crossed! Thank you,

Sandra Duval

Hello Lasqueti Community!

I represent a local BC engineering firm that is working on a project designing and building a marine-based solar power generation and energy storage catamaran for boat-access-only communities.

We're at a very important point in our design where feedback from off-grid residents and forward thinkers such as yourselves will be key to our ensuring a world class product with the right features and design elements.

In exchange for your input, we would be happy to offer you a free one week cruise aboard our first yacht, as well as the opportunity to trial our revolutionary new system to power up to 5 homes!

Anyone interested in learning more about our project can email ted [at] unitechengineering [dot] ca for more information, or leave a comment in the forum for further discussion.

Family looking for dream homestead

We are an independant, homeschooling, down to earth family of 7, 5 kiddos 2,4,6,8 and 10, dreaming of life on the island! 

We're aware and watching listed homes/properties, but wondering if anyone might be considering selling a parcel of land or existing homestead. 

We are looking for 10+acres with a creek and forest would be ideal.

We are not in a rush, co ops or land shares are not for us thanks.

If you are looking to sell, either a homestead already, or bare land, please reach out, kyersten [dot] kerr [at] gmail [dot] com

help wanted

Hans and Annemieke,

We are an older couple, probably a bit nuts, but we are planning to move to Lasqueti, and live there full time.

We have had the off grid experience, 28 years in the Cariboo, and also on an island off Tofino. 

We'd love to find help: muscle (for stuff around the yard, moving etc), as well as household help.

Wage open for discussion.
